Blip Magazine

"Blip: The Video Games Magazine" was a short-lived monthly video game magazine published by Marvel Comics and edited by Joe Claro. The first issue was published in February 1983, and the seventh and final issue was published in August of that year. Blip was aimed at a younger audience; it was comic-book sized, printed on comic book stock, and had video-game-related comics (some spanning several pages), while being somewhat thinner on computer hardware, news items and strategy guides.
